    Thirteen firefighters and a resident were injured in a fire that broke out in a Brooklyn building Wednesday.

    The two-alarm fire began at about 11:30 a.m. in the building on 18th Avenue in Borough Park, according to FDNY. Firefighters battled it for about two hours before it was under control.

    It raged on the second and third floor of the three-story building.

    The firefighters had minor injuries from smoke inhalation, and some may have suffered from the extreme heat, FDNY said. The injured resident also inhaled smoke.
